Simrad Receives Canadian Contract
—Literature Available Mesotech Systems Ltd. of Vancouver, a Simrad subsidiary, has been awarded a contract by the Canadian Hydrographic Service to supply the Simrad EM100 Multibeam Echo Sounder for two of their vessels, the Louis M. Lauzier and a newbuilding.
CHS will use the new equipment to improve the quality of their navigational charts and plan to start in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
The EM100 continuously measures water depth with 32 sharp beams and thus covers a swath width of 2.5 times the water depth. Measurements are compensated for , all vessel movements as well as raybending due to sound velocity variations. For more information and free literature on the Simrad EM100 Multibeam Echo Sounder,
